I am just a little bit surprised by my reaction to this tea. In my quest to drink every coconut Oolong I can get my hands on, I ordered some of this from iHeartTeas. I expected to be madly in love with it, and heartbroken that Golden Moon for some reason can’t arrange shipping to Canada (I’ve emailed them about it and they are very nice and helpful, but say it’s not a possibility at this point).

Anyway, I’m not in love! What! This isn’t to undermine this tea. It’s good. It’s really good! But, my mind is not blown. And I’ve been finding coconut Oolongs pretty mindblowing 3/3 up to this one. It has the same light Oolong crispness, the coconut sweetness. But I’ve had it twice now and it’s just not quite matching up. It’s going to be a pleasure to finish it, but I am (thankfully) not going to be in mourning when it’s finished. I’m enjoying it but it’s not the first tea I want to reach for like Tealish’s Coconut Bongo was while my 50 g lasted. I think the Spice and Tea Exchange and Tao Tea Leaf versions have been my favourite, but the price of the Tao one sets it back. Tealish’s is a close third, but its accessibility boosts its rating. This one comes in fourth, as a solid contender but lacking the star power of the others.

You are on a coconut oolong quest? Excellent! I’ll be looking for your reviews :D Although I haven’t tried one yet, it just sounds like such an amazing combo that I’m sure there’s a perfect coconut oolong out there.

It is an amazing combo! A couple have come close to perfect so far. This is my fourth, if you’re interested in the others (over the past month or so).

Oh yes, I will be heading back into your tealog for the others (which you listed above, it looks like). I actually have a sample of coconut pouchong, so if I like it, I’m REALLY going to be looking forward to trying the others :D
